Holy pancake batman, welcome to the Bongo Room. If you missed yesterday's post, I'm now reliving my Chicago St. Patty's Day 2012 restaurant stops, and I cannot forget to share this mouthwatering pancake experience.
The best part is that I'm not even a pancake person, and I LOVED this place. But who wouldn't when your feasting on white chocalate and caramel covered pretzel, pumpkin spice and chocolate chunk cheesecake, and banana and bacon flapjacks.
I could have ordered every pancake on the menu. I could have also ordered everything else on the menu - including fresh veggie omelets, scrambles and sandwiches. But since the savory items at Bongo Room reminded me a lot of breakfast spots in Texas - like Kerbey Lane or Magnolia in Austin - I stuck with the pancakes, and those rich and filling pancakes had me stuffed! Mega-recommendation: just order one pancake, seriously... and maybe share a variety amongst your group.
We ordered... banana flapjacks with crumbled bacon pieces, topped with warm praline sauce and fresh bananas...
I said mouthwatering, right?
